Public bug reported:

When inserting USB flash and hard disc drives in Ubuntu 10.10 on an IBM
ThinkCentre M/T 8172 the drives do not automount. Due to previous
reports of a similar nature I have tried disabling the floppy drive in
BIOS, physically disconnecting the floppy drive, running sudo modprobe
-r floppy, blacklisting the module and commenting the floppy entry from
fstab. I have found the drive will mount after; running lsusb, leaving
the drive in at boot, or suspending and resuming the PC. Prior to that
the device is not visible in fdisk -l and does not appear to be fully
powered, just a blip on the indicator light upon insertion. Attached are
files suggested at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DebuggingUSBStorage
